The painted tin Pulver's are earlier than the porcelain panel Pulver machines. The tin litho cases were manufactured for a short time starting in 1899. The sun quickly faded the painted cases since they were usually hung outdoors. The Pulver company realized a change had to be made and switched to the porcelain versions which lasted much longer. Most of the painted tin cases are found in rough shape or badly faded. I have upgraded a few times and now have nice original examples of both versions--Pulver's Chocolate Cocoa & Gum and Pulver's Kola Pepsin Gum in 5 Cent Packages. The characters inside are Happy Hooligan and Buster Brown. The glass on my Buster Brown machine is cracked, but I decided to leave it since the original decal and label are still attached.
